Here is how it really went.: First of all I never leisurely stroll anywhere- so that was out. Secondly there were so many people that I had to have a death grip on my child and shove through people to hit the key points of attraction. The reindeer first of all were TINY. Mike and I are still arguing if they were real reindeer. I have decided -per wikepeidia -that I was expecting Caribou and instead I got home grown reindeer which are much smaller than their wild counterparts.
The "live nativity" scene was really a couple animals which i am not even sure were in Bethlehem. Santa and horse drawn carriage were so busy that the line was down the block - we laughed at the line. The Christmas Walk was a total bust! There were so many people there that it was not even enjoyable. I am not sure if we will do it again next year.
